So I read this article on puppies are ****** about mutations. Here is the part I have a question on...
"In combination with the Blue, Opaline and Clearwing mutations, the single factor (SF) Yellowface 2 mutation produces the variety called Rainbow."
When it says blue, does that mean any blue? Would love to get a rainbow for my wife, but I just need yo make sure I'm understanding this correctly. Here are the birds I'm considering pairing. For now, they are separated, but would they be able to produce a rainbow, if they bond and mate? The first bird pic has white flight feathers and is believed to be a male. The female is a type 2 yellowface and of breeding age.Thanks for any info and opinons. And, no, I will not be breeding them for a while, even if they can produce rainbows. I have to learn more first...
No, they will not produce a rainbow unless both birds are split for clearwing or one of each are split for greywing and cleawing (unlikely), and unless the dad is split for opaline. Also, since the father seems to be single factor dominant pied or perhaps clearflight pied, the chicks would have to not inherit any of the clear flight genes as any pied in a rainbow is a fault and is not part of the mutation
